After a little advice here. Im trying to add a second HDD to an old computer running XP. Basically it already has a 10GB HDD and is pretty much maxed out.
I have an old HDD ('Maxator DiamondMax Plus 8' 30GB ATA/133) and i want to add it to the computer. i have some basic knowledge, but have not added a HDD before.
Firstly, on the HDD it says to turn it into a slave HDD i should use two 'pin things', could this be correct? or is it suggesting i use one or the other locations for it? the pic attached shows what i mean...
Once that is sorted, i connect it and turn the comp on - what will i expect to happen? Basically i have no software for it etc so will windows be able to configure it itself? Do i need to make any backup discs etc?
